We’re an innovative, award-winning practice with offices in both Leeds and London

We create environments that work for the communities and people they serve. We have particular expertise in housing and build-to-rent, in education and workspace, the leisure industry and in the creative re-purposing of existing spaces to provide innovative new uses.

Since 1972 we have delivered over 400 built projects in the UK and abroad, working across a range of sectors and evolving with the times. We are practically minded, creatively-focused and have a range of unique skillsets and expertise – from conservation to sustainability and wellbeing – applicable to project of every scale and typology.

We believe that buildings are a reflection of the people that use them day in and day out. Design should always be emotive, start conversation and hold Interest. We will work with you to ensure your project exceeds your expectations now and is capable of evolving to meet your changing needs in the future.
